What is a gyre?
A gyre is a large-scale system of wind-driven surface currents in the ocean. The gyres referred to in the name of our organization are the five main subtropical gyres—located in the North and South Pacific, the North and South Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean—which are massive, circular current systems.
We have chosen to name this bracelet in honor of the Manta Ray! Each year it’s likely that many thousands of manta rays are caught as "bycatch", these captured animals are often dead or dying before they are discarded back into the sea. Each year the world’s fisheries discard 7 million tons of fish, that’s one tenth of the world’s global catch thrown back over the side of the boat.
These nautical rope bracelets are handcrafted from recycled fishing net salvaged from a beach in the Bahamas. Each piece of salvaged rope is unique with slight variations in color and condition, caused by natural weathering. All bracelets are 100% waterproof & fastened with a custom tag featuring the Planet Love Life logo and brand name. Join us in supporting this important cause by helping spread awareness of marine debris and its negative impacts on the environment.
Each bracelet purchased helps keep our oceans clean & represents the life of a marine animal saved from entanglement.
